Just so I’m clear, for some...
at 07:20 11 Feb 2019

Our previous previous manager, who achieved 4 top half finishes in 5 seasons, is hated for swearing at our fans whilst overseeing a 1-1 draw at Norwich last season

Our current manager, who has achieved 12 losses in 17 games, is a hero for getting himself sent off whilst overseeing our 3rd heaviest ever derby defeat

Have I got that right?

How many players do we think Lamberts arrival has improved?
at 21:00 5 Jan 2019

Sears and err, Jordan Roberts perhaps?

Lankester too at a push but I guess that’s more a case of giving him a chance

Any others?

3 points a must and I fancy we’ll get them, which hopefully will kick start our season. Still have massive doubts about Hurst but hopefully he’ll prove me wrong

Just seen him mentioned in the Hurst article. Thoughts?

Part of me is an instant no as I immediately think of Allardyce when his name is mentioned, but in truth I know nothing of his Notts County team and how they play. On the face of it though he looks to have done a decent job

It’s over, no point dragging it out any further
at 09:28 14 Mar 2018

I would still maintain that Mick has done a good job overall, in terms of results. Top half finishes in all bar one full season (and sitting there currently), and even in the one that we didn’t it can be argued we finished above where our budget dictates we should be. The squad is in much better shape than inherited and we arguably have a lot of the pieces for a playoff push - which is a far cry from where we were

But 2 awful performances and any faint hope of the playoffs has gone. Meanwhile we sit 22 points clear of relegation. There really is nothing to play for the rest of the way. A large portion of the fans are bored or turned off by the style, and with no excitement of anything to play for there really isn’t any point in delaying the inevitable. I think we’d probablt be worse under a caretaker - but it may at least lift the atmosphere a bit as clearly PR is going to be a horrible place to watch and play football for the rest of the season regardless. At the very least we should be confirming what is happening in the Summer - which is presumably that Mick is off

It’s a shame it’s ended this way given the job Mick had previously done. It’s probable that at the end of last season was when it should have happened, as despite the poor season he probably would have gone with the goodwill of most (although I can see why we didn’t, and arguably that may have been justified had we not lost most of our midfield). As it is he’ll probably leave one of the more disliked Ipswich managers in history - a lot of that of his own making

Thanks Mick, but time to move on, for all involved

And looking at the fixtures, some winnable games coming up

We probably need to win 3 of the next 4 if we’re going to seriously challenge for the playoffs IMO, which would see us in a decent position heading into the derby. Here’s hoping we can get a little run going - COYB

After the second Fulham goal, when the goalscorers name was read out someone behind me yelled out ‘ Oh good, another Englishman’

Ignoring the casual xenophobia/racism, I can only assume that by ‘another’ he was also referring to the first goalscorer. That being England under 19 international Ryan Sessegnon...

Well that went south fast
at 23:05 2 Jan 2018

Ridiculously stupid from Spence. Whether you think it should have been a red or not (personally think the ref had no option but seen others suggesting it should have been a yellow), by going in like that he was always inviting the ref to send him off - completely unnecessary when 1-0 up and in that area of the pitch

I actually thought at that point we’d got a good foothold in the game and were looking relatively comfortable. First 30 minutes were a struggle, but as Fulham’s press tired a bit in the first half we’d got more into the game culmanating with the goal, and continued that way in the second half

Unfortunately following the card it all rather went to sh*t. Without the benefit of watching the highlights, the first looked a good goal with a bit of luck at the end, the second a huge slice of luck for Fulham and then our heads going completely from there, although pretty irrelevant as it was game over already. Not sure what happened from the 4th as decided to leave and get the half 10 train home

So where from here? Playoffs look out of reach and we won’t go down, so for me a decision on McCarthy’s future needs to be made soon with January business and the rest of the season looking to the future

Like most I think Mick’s time is up - personally I’m not convinced we’ll be any better for a new man coming in without significant investment, but definitely feels as if the whole club needs a change and a lift. Regardless I still think Mick has done a great job overall given the budget constraints, but at he same time completely get the criticism re style - if we’re not going to challenge for promotion and fans aren’t enjoying watching then really you have to question the point

Sorry, that turned into a bit of a ramble!
